Your ACS assessment is defective
You can see the sample reference letter given in the ACS website
It clearly shows that location have to be clearly marked as separate entries

And so based on a defective assessment the entire process thereafter becomes defective

Apply to ACS immediately for a correction in the assessment after getting a new reference letter from your company which bifurcates the locations
I doubt ACS will entertain your request after a year, and will probably ask you to apply afresh
Moreover even if you get a fresh assessment, the CO may not accept it as it is done after the invite


Maybe if you are lucky enough the CO will not go too deep into your ACS assessment and will give you a grant without you having to do anything

How you want to proceed is your decision but if I were in your shoes I would be very worried
Of course I have a very low threshold for errors in immigration application and hence my panic and maybe all is well

Thanks for letting me know. Just saw ACS template again.

Employment references must contain:
1. Start & Finish Dates of Employment - if currently employed, your "finish" date can be written as
the "To Date", but the job reference must have the date when it was written or it will be assessed
as not suitable.
2. Description of Duties Performed - required to determine the relevance to thenominated occupation
3. Hours worked - Full time or Part time
4. Country where Employment was Completed - if you have worked with the same company in different countries, the job reference must have the dates and locations clearly specified.
5. Company Letterhead and signed by the author

I missed it right from the beginning. I got it done for my previous employer where i had Australian 1 year exp as well but missed for my current employer. I really pray and hope not to get picked on this. I am not falsifying information in a planned way and all my exp letters/service letters etc are on Company letter head. It's just that i missed it when got RNR generated from current employer. I hope CO will be kind to me and ask me to get new letter(if needed) from employer only. My roles and responsibilities remained same both in UK and India.

In worst case scenario, will it go for rejection? or i will be given a chance to get new letter from ACS or new RNR letter from employer. As far as exp points are concerned, they remain same.

How the co will react, is asking for speculation
Your guess is as good as mine

Wait for the grant or CO contact and then take it from there

Kaju has made such a prominent sticky thread on the forum which would have prevented most common mistakes the applicant make during the process but unfortunately very few members take the time to go through it

They prefer to waste their time speculating when they will get the invite and their grant over which they have no control, instead of concentrating on how to submit a better application

Anyways one can only do so much for other members

Yes. Agreed. It's my mistake which could have been avoided. Hope CO will ignore
it as even if the CO assumes deduction of 10 months I still manage to have 15 points on exp. All other supporting documents are provided. Thanks for taking time to respond. Appreciate.

Can i receive a CO contact for producing Tax related details of UK stay/work(though for same company X)?

For my previous company(I:E before 2014), I got Australian stay mentioned as I had to claim Australian work points as well, like i worked between **/**/2012 to **/**/2013 in Australia and rest of the period in India. As far as ACS letter is concerned, They have provided me Australian work mentioned the way i wanted and nothing mentioned for my UK work.

Is there any need of voluntary correction for mentioning UK work of 10 months? or is it that since i worked for same organisation and it falls in overseas exp so it does not matter to CO if i worked in UK(on client assignment) or India as all will fall into Overseas exp.
Our case was little similar to yours. My wife (main applicant) is working for a reputed IT company and was deputed to the UK for 7 months (transferred from ABC company, India to ABC Company, UK ). She was on the payroll of UK office and was paying taxes, getting salary slips from that entity. However, while filing for ACS, we didn't provide any information about that location since her company didn't provide that transfer information on RnR. The ACS was positive and we filled the EOI based on that and similarly filled the visa application in the same manner without creating any discrepancy. But when we uploaded the documents, we provide all UK documents like passport (with UK visa stamp), all 7 payslips, tax returns statement, UK bank statement (highlighted salary). In form80 & form1221, we mentioned UK employment duration, office address, UK stay address, etc. Still, we got out visa in less than 90 days of applying.

Note: During these 7 months my wife not getting any salary from India & her employment was put on hold in India entity till the time she was in the UK. Hence she does not have any Indian payslip those 7 months, no PF updates on the statement, no bank statement updates for salary credit.

So if you were transferred and was getting the salary from UK entity then you should fill your EOI & visa application the same way as we did. If you were not transferred and was payroll of India entity and was getting per diems (allowance) then your RnR is right and you have to fill you EOI & visa application based on the outcome of ACS.

Typically it takes on average 2-3 months. But it's very random and up to anybody's guess. You can get it tmrw or after two years. So just sit tight and wait for it.
